Day 36 –  We are nearing the end.   2 more nights then we walk into Santiago.  This 500 mile trek has been quite the odessy .  Many challenges and triumphs.  Nothing like it but after 36 days I am very tired and sore.  This has been a life changing event that I hope to expand on later.

Last night we shared an 8 person room in an Albergue with the alliance we call the CIA.  It is comforting to be with people we know and trust.  For dinner Michael and Jess made a home cooked meal of chicken and potatoes.  Oh, a home cooked meal. It’s pretty cool that we go our separate ways during the day but gather up at night.

On these final days many are on the trail; school groups, students and families.  It’s quite a the festive atomosphere.  Will they experience the magic of this trek?

Today I walked for my bonus family members.  Michael who is like a son and Ashlee our beautiful daughter in law.

We are now in Galecia where octopus is the specialty.  Tried some in Melide, a town we walked through today.   Hmmm.
